Who we are

We are passionate about community.

We are optimistic about the future. 

We are committed to making a difference.

Rebecca Secrist Denlinger is the driving force behind Rising Tide Collaborative, LLC. She’s long been drawn to the quote often credited to JFK (and sometimes to Ronald Reagan) that “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Politics aside, Rebecca wanted to create a company that embodies her passion for helping people and communities accomplish great things that improve the quality of life. For everyone.

Throughout a career that has included leadership roles in both the public and private sectors, Rebecca has been instrumental in helping organizations create and execute action-oriented strategic plans. With an emphasis on sustainable implementation, her efforts regularly lead to groups’ realizing their vision. Rebecca has helped secure over $150 million in program and project funding impacting over 50 regional communities. She works to cultivate key relationships, secure critical resources, set people and groups up with effective communication systems, and structure organizations for long term success.

But there’s a reason the word collaborative is part of this firm’s name. Strong partnerships are central to who we are and what we do. We surround ourselves with smart, positive, energetic people. We align ourselves with like-minded organizations and work hard to cultivate lasting relationships. We believe that all good things flow from collaborations built on trust.
